You don’t lead by pointing and telling people some place to go. You lead by going to that place and making a case.
A good leader is a person who takes a little more than his share of the blame and a little less than his share of the credit.

I start with the premise that the function of leadership is to produce more leaders, not more followers.
Lead me, follow me, or get out of my way.
General George Patton
My own definition of leadership is this: The capacity and the will to rally men and women to a common purpose and the character which inspires confidence.
Effective leadership is putting first things first. Effective management is discipline, carrying it out.
A leader is one who knows the way, goes the way, and shows the way.
Not the cry, but the flight of a wild duck, leads the flock to fly and follow.
You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You must do the thing you think you cannot do.
